Virtual Work Leadership Training.

Reach 100% Potential.

One Team. One Future. Never One Place.

+20–30%
productivity improvement of distributed teams with the right process and tools.
McKinsey & Company

Great leaders know that they must adapt to achieve in today’s geographically distributed, often completely virtual and hardly in-person world. They must motivate the best and brightest. And they must seamlessly understand, communicate with and orchestrate an entire organization to drive business results, all while considering the dispersed opinions of their managers, partners, agencies and clients.

We were not only some of the pioneers of creating and implementing virtual work principles and systems for leadership, employees, and all external parties to work seamlessly together—we’ve been perfecting our methods for 8 years, and with 18 years of experience spent leading from the inside of each of those places.

“We needed better methods to ensure that our teams that were spread across 4 office sites and 4 time zones were able to innovate quickly and effectively. Virtual Work Insider brought concrete plans on how to do this.”

Priscilla Tuan
SVP Marketing and Innovation

“Partnering with Virtual Work Insider unlocked collaboration, culture and efficiency improvements across our global organization.  The approachable style, adapting to our culture, and daily demonstration of the principles taught made the program extremely effective. I would recommend Virtual Work Insider to anyone and everyone looking to increase their virtual leadership skills and capabilities, at any level in an organization.”

Eric Schuetzler
Vice President – Global R&D

“We engaged Virtual Work Insider to help our sales teams in their transition to working virtually as part of a large (pre-COVID) field sales reorganization.  The assessment work provided a helpful baseline to understand the team’s self-reported strengths and opportunity areas.  The data showed many common struggles across teams, which is being addressed directly through the training content.  For example, when COVID hit, some salespeople felt they had been “rendered ineffective” without the option to visit dealer customers in-person.  The training has provided practical tools to be able to sell and build relationships virtually.  Leaders are sharing that they feel even more connected and productive now than they use to be, both internally and with customers.”
